What are the Occupational experiences of BAME unpaid mental health carers for people with a mental health diagnosis?

Hello fellow carers. New blog from Matthew McKenzie

I have a new research project for those from ethnic backgrounds to get involved in.

This research study is to understand the occupational experiences of unpaid BAME unpaid mental health carers. Occupation refers to the purposeful activities that ensure individuals have a sense of identity and live independently.

What is the purpose of the study?

Using the OPHI-II semi-structured interview will provide an exploration of the occupational choices, critical life events, daily routine, occupational roles and environment of the BAME mental health caregivers. This will provide insight into the respective communities’ occupational experiences.
